London: Singer Cheryl Cole is said to be worried about her biological clock and feels that she is running out of time to start a family.
The 29-year-old was hoping to have kids with her now-estranged husband Ashley Cole, but their relationship came to end when it was revealed that the football player was cheating on her with other women.
"Cheryl worries she`s put her career before everything else, including settling down. She is desperate for children," femalefirst.co.uk quoted a source as saying in reference to her forthcoming autobiography.
"She reveals in the book that not only did she think she`d be a mum by now, but that she would have had a family with Ashley if things hadn`t gone so wrong," added the source.
Cheryl is now dating dancer Tre Holloway and has recovered from the heartbreak Ashley caused her. But she writes about how she hit rock bottom after her marriage ended in 2010.
"Cheryl was an emotional wreck around that time. Depression is something she has battled with and this was her lowest point. She wondered if she needed help," said the source.
Cole has previously said herself: "I just found myself looking at my team, thinking, `Please somebody help me.` Although I didn`t do it, it was suggested that I seek therapy."
